Valentine’s for Singles – Self love and random acts of kindness

Valentine’s Day as a single person, it can be daunting for some. The day of love, the day of romance, the day of over priced cheap pink and red chocolates and cuddly toys. It doesn’t have to be about that though. For me, it’s about loving and embracing who I am, sharing love with not

The art of sharing with Prezzo and Britmums

When I eat out with friends and family I love to share food.  There is something beautiful about being able to share food, especially good food we love, with those that we care about most. It was something that I was encouraged to do when growing up and something I have continued with Nathan, too.

What can we do to tackle food waste?

There is a shocking statistic that 30% of the food we purchase is thrown away here in Britain. That is a huge amount of food, food which could go to a worth cause to help disadvantaged families or the homeless. I will admit that my fridge does need a good clear out, it has it’s

Give Nathan the choice of food to eat and he will pick from a short list. Burgers, wraps, curry or pasta. We were recently invited to Ta’am in Manchester and after a quick glance of the menu, I knew Nathan would be in his element. Martine welcomed us with open arms as we arrived to

#Thankgoodness – The Dolmio Challenge with Britmums

I was recently challenged to undertake a cooking challenge from BritMums, and in the wise words of Barney Stinston, Challenge Accepted! We were sent a shopping haul from Tesco with the aim to make a nutritious family meal with Dolmio Bolognse Sauce. Normally I make my own pasta sauce thinking that jars contained extra additives,

Foodie Friday – Breakfast with Worsley Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club

Breakfast is not normally something that I focus on. I am not usually hungry in the mornings, opting for coffee or something later on. But once in a blue moon I fancy breakfast, and by that I mean a proper breakfast, one with all the trimmings.  I have a local place that I go to
